Kimball Art Center & Montage Deer Valley Host Winter Art Salon
A four-day event showcasing a variety of vendors and artists of a wide range of styles and price points
Park City, UT- The Winter Art Salon at Montage Deer Valley kicks off on February 12th through the 15th of 2016. Attendees will have the chance to buy art from internationally renowned artists and luxury goods vendors, participate in discussions and lectures with artists and art experts and enjoy kids’ activities and workshops.
“This collaboration with Montage Deer Valley is giving us the opportunity to connect locals and visitors with world-renowned artists and their work,” says Robin Marrouche, Executive Director of the Kimball Art Center. “Susan Swartz, Sibylle Szaggars Redford and Nathan Sawaya are just a few of the international talents that people will have the opportunity to interact with, see their latest creations and purchase art from,” she says.
Visitors will find innovative mediums from feather art from Brussels to a LEGO sculpture to fine art. Be it gold jewelry from Alaska or cashmere from Milan, the Kimball has carefully curated this gathering of artistic offerings. Presidents’ Week recreation seekers will be treated to a special addition of cultural interest and appeal when they are off the slopes.
“During a visit to Art Basel in Miami a few years ago many art enthusiasts told me that they ski Deer Valley during Presidents’ Week so we decided to merge the two concepts for the ultimate experience for the leisure and the cultural tourist alike,” explains Marrouche. “For skiers with an art problem, the Winter Art Salon is the answer.”
The four-day event kicks-off with a VIP preview party on Friday, February 12th at 6:00 p.m. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be available while guests browse art, jewelry, exhibitions and items from luxury vendors. The VIP reception will also include performances by the Utah Symphony Youth Guild.
The Winter Art Salon will be open to the public throughout the weekend (Saturday, February 13th through Monday, February 15th from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.). The Winter Art Salon is free with all proceeds to benefit the Kimball Art Center’s exhibitions, events and free art education for children. Summit Sotheby’s International Realty, Montage Deer Valley and Zions Bank are presenting sponsors for this special event.
